Maryland intends to raise taxes by more than $6,200 per family for K-12 public education.
If approved, it would be the largest tax hike in Maryland’s history!
The tax hike is in addition to current spending and on top of last November’s ballot initiative that earmarked Casino Revenue for public education.
Proponents say that K-12 Education is “Falling Behind”. Actually, Baltimore City is falling behind. Baltimore has the fourth highest spending per student in the United States! Yet, 83% of Baltimore’s Schools are failed schools.
Clearly, funding isn’t the problem.
Penalizing & Taxing all Marylanders for Baltimore City’s corruption and incompetence must end. It’s time for a State Takeover of Baltimore City Schools.
